Teen angst can be a powerful force. However, during an Indian family talk show a man called Mr Murugan had much more than just an argument about his daughter’s relationship to deal with. In 2012, during the show titled Solvathellam Unmai, host Lakshmy Ramakrishnan had what appeared to be an routine family discussion. A 16-year-old girl was on the show because she’d planned to run away with her boyfriend. After the situation cooled down, the host told the family to go home and sort things out but things took an unexpected turn when the 16-year-old girl explained the reason she wanted to leave was her father.
